A Geniune Italian Restaurant Favorite….With Added Spice. When does a cafe or restaurant be a little more than just a location to just get something to eat? When does eating out become a great experience? At Johnny Carino’s, we attempt to be YOUR favorite authentic Italian restaurant.
Food is in the middle of our mission. From the Italian classics, to the one-of-a-kind spiced Italian favorites, our offerings are handcrafted from your finest, freshest ingredients available. Whether you’re craving Italian comfort food like our 16-Layer Lasagna, or something that is with some more spice like our famous Italian Nachos, Johnny Carino’s has something for everybody.
We revere the tradition of serving only the best, and once it indicates arriving early to hand-roll the meatballs, create a 16-Layer Lasagna one layer at a time, or craft our tiramisu completely from scratch, we consider it passion, not work. Even though our company is most very proud of the Italian classics, it’s our one-of-a-kind, signature spicy dishes that actually get us excited! Just a little something we call Spiced Italian. Our Spicy Shrimp and Chicken, Italian Nachos, and Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia have been a lot of our very popular dishes since we first opened our doors.
So whether you adore the classics, or the spice, it will almost always be fresh and handmade to order at Johnny Carino’s. Carino’s Italian is actually a United States-based chain of Italian food casual dining restaurants. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the concept is belonging to Fired Up, Inc., which was founded in 1997 by partners and former Brinker International executives Norman Abdallah and Creed Ford III. The company filed for bankruptcy protection on March 31, 2014 and again declared bankruptcy in 2016. The filings were concurrent with all the closing of several Carino’s locations; while Carino’s once owned or franchised greater than 170 restaurants across the usa, since July 23, 2018, only about 55 Carino’s locations still operate.
History of Johnny Carino’s Family Restaurant – In 1997, Fired Up Restaurant Concepts acquired the only real five existing Johnny Carino’s Italian Kitchen, infusing them with the power and passion we know today. Beginning from Chef Carino in the early years, and carrying forward today with Chef Chris Peitersen, Johnny Carino’s has developed many signature dishes that respect the authentic Italian traditions, while creating unique, “spiced” flavor profiles that express Johnny Carino’s passion and creativity, and azsdth to fresh, quality food in a great value.
With over 70 locations in america and 10 across the Middle East, Johnny Carinos Holiday Hours has evolved the dining experience for anybody who wants to enjoy a great Italian family restaurant atmosphere. As we have evolved within the last fifteen years, we have now never lost touch using the love for excellent food and wonderful service our company offers to our own guests.
